Gaunt Gary was a 20th century pool hustler from New York City. It was said that Gaunt Gary hustled the great Willie Mosconi in Ames Pool Hall in 1953.

Tom Paris created a hologram of the famous player for the Chez Sandríne holodeck program. He tried to hustle Harry Kim asking if he wanted to wager a fin. He also told him to watch out for Paris, that he would take his money without cracking a smile. Gary's sexist manner offended B'Elanna Torres. He told her that a man should treat a lady like a tramp, and a tramp like a lady. She called him a pig. (VOY: "The Cloud")

When Neelix and Tuvok were having a pool match, Gaunt Gary advised Neelix during his turns. One such move he recommended against "Vulcan Slim" was to perform a "safety". (VOY: "Jetrel")

He attended Kes' second birthday party but became bored and wanted to shoot a rack of pool. (VOY: "Twisted")

Gaunt Gary was played by actor Larry A. Hankin.
He filmed his scenes for "The Cloud" on Tuesday 6 December 1994, "Jetrel" on Wednesday 22 March 1995, and "Twisted" between Monday 24 April 1995 and Friday 28 April 1995 on Paramount Stage 16.
